Out of the two, the RB is a monster, but it's modified and the OS is stock. If they were both modified I have to give it up to the Rody RB because it's backed with championships. The TZ is pretty new on the market, so time will tell.

Orange looks more appealing to me with the paintjob of the body. Nice looking car btw.

Just curious the whites are fast tires and orange wheels are GQ's if im correct? If so, which one do you think has better grip?

well here in St. Louis the weather sucks, so i have not had a chance to try them out.. From the way it's looking I would have to say about mid April will be the time to try them out.. The Orange GQ tires are 35's all around, the White Fast Tires are 37's all around..

Get some orange rit dye. Can find this at supermarkets, you can dye white rims whatever color you want.

Then you can take your exact tires and make whatever pairs orange and leave the others white so your not running tires from two different companies.

If they were the same wheel I'd say orange rear and white front but since they aren't then I'd just go with the orange. Y-spoked wheels are the best looking wheels you can put on a car anyways.

Yellow and orange don't look good together IMO.
